  1. Southampton 2-2 Burnley: Dyche reaction, published at17:33 23 October

    Burnley boss Sean Dyche to BBC Match of the Day: "I think there were a lot of good things about our performances. I've been saying that a lot lately but we had two excellent goals by Maxwel [Cornet]. "We are disappointed with the goals [conceded]. The first from a set-piece and the second from a mistake, but from a player that has been terrific for us. We brought him [Cornet] to add to what we do. He had been good but we had to be a bit cautions with him as he cramped a bit with a hamstring issue. He gives us that bit of difference we have been searching for. "By our positive substitutions, it was clear we were trying to win the game. It was another positive display with a couple of mistakes. Eradicate them and we are in good shape with what we are trying to achieve."

    Lawro's prediction: 2-1

    Burnley are still waiting for their first league win of the season but Southampton got theirs against Leeds last week, which was big for them.

    The Clarets put up a decent fight in their defeat at Manchester City but that is the least I expect from them. Goals seem hard to come by, which is a worry.

    Southampton are hardly prolific themselves, but I think they will edge this one.

    Elena's prediction: This one might be quite boring. 0-0

    Haydn's prediction: I agree! 0-0

    Southampton welcome back forward Che Adams, who missed the win against Leeds after suffering a minor muscle problem playing for Scotland.

    James Ward-Prowse serves the second game of a three-match ban, while Jack Stephens is a long-term absentee.

    Burnley will monitor the fitness of captain Ben Mee, who could come back into contention after missing their last fixture because of Covid-19.

    The Clarets will also assess injury doubts Matej Vydra and Charlie Taylor.

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche has urged his players to reach the "next level" by turning "good performances" into victories in the Premier League.

    Dyche's side travel to Southampton on Saturday without a win in their opening eight league fixtures.

    "You have to win," said Dyche, whose side are 18th in the table, three points adrift of Leeds in 17th.

    "The next level is to turn our good performances into winning performances. We’d take a lucky one but ideally you want the players to play well and earn the right to win.

    "There's some good work being done; they need to stay strong and keep believing. The minimum requirement is maximum effort and these lads are putting that in."

    Dyche, the Premier League's longest-serving manager, sympathised with the views shared by Steve Bruce this week, after the former Newcastle boss described his hurt at some of the insults he received during his time at the club.

    "I think it's the unfortunate part of the job," added Dyche. "It gets worse every year with the coverage; everyone has a phone. There are some very good things but there are some very bad things with the job."

    Southampton host Burnley in the Premier League this weekend - but what happened when the two teams last met in the top flight?

    Saints fought back from two goals down to beat Burnley 3-2 and claim three crucial points in the battle for Premier League survival in April.

    A Chris Wood penalty and Matej Vydra's volley put Burnley in control after 28 minutes at St Mary's, but Southampton were level before half-time through Stuart Armstrong and Danny Ings.

    Nathan Redmond completed the comeback with a volley midway through the second half to move Southampton 10 points clear of the relegation zone with eight games remaining.

    Here are the key points from the Clarets boss:

    • He will make a decision on the fitness of Matej Vydra, Ben Mee and Charlie Taylor but all three are in contention;

    • Burnley are "creating chances" and that he can see "good work" is being done by the players in order to improve their position;

    • The "next level" for Burnley is to turn good performances into wins as they continue to seek a first victory of the season;

    • Abuse aimed at former Newcastle manager Steve Bruce is part of an issue that "gets worse" every season;

    Burnley are 18th in the Premier League on three points, while hosts Southampton are in 15th place on seven.

  16. Silva makes the difference but stubborn Clarets can take positives, published at07:34 18 October

    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport

    Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and John Stones were all recalled by Pep Guardiola, but it was Bernardo Silva who stole the show for Manchester City in their 2-0 win over Burnley.

    Guardiola hailed Silva afterwards, saying his performance was “extraordinary, again” after another fine all-round display by the Portugal midfielder, who scored the opening goal.

    As a team, City did not hit those heights on Saturday but they produced enough quality when it mattered to take the points against a stubborn Burnley side.

     There were positives for the Clarets too, despite their defeat. Sean Dyche’s side are still without a victory after eight league games this season but they did not play like a team lying third-bottom of the table.
